Welcome to Cotea!

Cotea is a little gem in the heart of beautiful Westbourne in Dorset. We have gone a long way to create a lovely, cosy place were everyone is treated like a guest who deserves the absolute best in terms of food quality and service. 


In 2017, after being kindly nominated by our customers, Cotea won the “Best Coffee Shop of the Year” award from Dorset Magazine Food Awards and we were also one of the finalists for the same award in 2018!

Cotea is more than a coffeeshop or tea room. We offer organic coffee from the local roastery, which has been named as the best coffee in town (and it truly is!). We also offer a wide range of loose-leaf teas (more
than 40 on the list!) amazing food and incredible cakes.


Or Order Online

We offer online ordering for collection between Tuesday and Saturday

Click & Collect Ordering – (Tues – Sat)

Special Events / Outside catering

Cotea has an outstanding menu that changes with the seasons. We serve fresh, homemade, healthy food including a variety of special breakfasts, delicious soups, stunning salads, unusual (and yummy!) paninis and, of course, sandwiches.

All meals and cakes are created using the owner’s own recipes. We’ve established an excellent reputation for being very different from any other coffee shops. In fact, our special salad dressings have been so popular that we started to sell special balsamic vinegars, including fig and date, cranberry, and blueberry. They’re going down a storm – come and try them for yourself!

Don’t forget: we also prepare food for buffets and we rent the Cotea premises out for special occasions. Cotea is licensed premises too, so from time to time we hold wine and cheese events – ask us about what’s coming up.

Cakes for sale

Cotea cakes are a very popular choice to order for special occasions. We are very, very busy with Birthday, Christening, Wedding, Baby Shower and other event cakes – please view our price list below.

Sincerely yours,

Lovely late lunch

We came for a late lunch. It was busy so we were asked to return 15 minutes later so after a look around the shops we did. The lunch was really tasty. I had a ham, brie and apple panini. My son had a chicken and rosemary panini. Both came with a salad which had a really lovely dressing on. It was fig and date dressing which was homemade and we were able ed to buy some. The bottle can be taken back to be refilled…love the eco friendly bit! We didn’t have hot drinks but there was a large selection of tea and coffee. I would really recommend this place.

Perfect place for coffee, tempting cakes and/or lunch

This is a great discovery, a small, cosy, welcoming coffee house right opposite M&S in Westbourne. The owners are quite charming and welcoming. Tables always have unique flower arrangements and the home baked cakes are very tempting. It is now a favourite of ours and our the highlight of our regular M&S shopping trips.

Lovely lunch

Love this little place. I’m gluten free and there’s loads of choice. The bread is really good, not your sliced white cardboard. The sandwiches are fresh and tasty combinations
The tea and coffee are always good with lots of choice and the service is friendly and happy. Can’t fault it.
